Hanson Gets to 9 Under for Lead at Masters
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Peter Hanson made back-to-back birdies to close out a round of 7-under 65 and take the lead after three rounds at the Masters.

He'll have a final-round pairing with Phil Mickelson, who shot 30 on the back Saturday and finished 8-under par, one shot behind Hanson.

Another shot behind, at 7 under, is 2010 British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen, who made five birdies in a round of 3-under 69.

Hanson is making only his second appearance at Augusta National while Mickelson is going for his fourth green jacket.

Not surprisingly, Mickelson's play showed how well he knows this course, especially 15, when he took a full swing from behind the green for a flop shot that landed 4 feet away. He made birdie there and shot 6-under 66.
